Two people were arrested Tuesday for allegedly vandalizing a home southwest of Ada.
Arrested were 20-year-old Courtney Carlile Crockett of Tulsa and a 17-year-old female Ada resident whose identity wasn’t released because she is a minor. Pontotoc County sheriff’s deputies responded to a burglary-in-progress call at a residence on County Road 1570 three miles west of state Highway 1 just after 7 p.m.
A neighbor reported she witnessed a break-in at a vacant house. When deputies Brandon Hurley and Kevin Wood arrived, they discovered a car in the driveway and a suspect running through the house.
“Myself and Deputy Wood exited our patrol cars, drew our weapons and went toward the residence,” Hurley said in a report. “I covered the front door while Deputy Wood went toward the back of the residence. I announced, ‘Sheriff’s Office, come out with your hands up’ several times and no one came to the front door. While covering the front door, Deputy Wood located two females ... in the back yard of the residence that had come out of a storm shelter.”
Deputies arrested the two and inspected the house. Hurley and Wood discovered broken windows and wet paint splattered about the floors and walls of the house. Crockett and the juvenile were arrested on suspicion of second-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit a felony and malicious injury to property.
